Coffee is the most popular beverage in the United States. In a 2022 survey by the National Coffee Association, 66% of participants said they had consumed a cup of coffee in the previous day (1).
And whether you drink your coffee at home, at the office, or on the go, the mug you choose is important.
From mugs that keep your coffee warm all morning to stylish ceramic mugs that are microwave-safe, there’s no shortage of options to choose from.
Here are our picks of the 11 best coffee mugs.
We chose the best coffee mugs using the following criteria:
General price ranges with dollar signs ($–$$$) are indicated below. One dollar sign means the product is rather affordable, whereas three dollar signs indicate a higher cost.
Generally, prices range from $5 to $150, though this may vary depending on where you shop. Prices may also vary for products that are available in multiple sizes or are customizable.
Offering just the right balance of form and function, the Yeti Rambler is perfect for taking your java on the go.
In addition to a sleek body that easily fits in most car cupholders, it has a magnetic slider lid that’s easy to open. Just keep in mind that the lid is not leak- or spill-proof.
It also doesn’t hurt that the double-wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks warm (or cold) for hours.
This popular mug comes in a variety of colors and sizes and is customizable, with the option to add a monogram or logo.
“I was gifted my Yeti Rambler Tumbler several years ago, and it’s still my go-to mug, regardless of whether I’m taking my coffee on the go or sipping it at home.
“As someone who drinks their coffee slowly, I love that the tumbler keeps my coffee nice and hot all morning long. I also appreciate that it fits in most cupholders, is easy to clean, and doesn’t have lingering odors.”
— Healthline Nutrition Market Editor Kelli McGrane, MS, RD
(P.S. This mug was also a top recommendation of two other Healthline editors!)
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option, the Brew Cork should be at the top of your list.
The mug is made of eco-friendly tempered glass and renewable, biodegradable cork. Plus, KeepCup is a Certified B Corporation and donates a percentage of sales to environmental causes.
The Brew Cork is great for bringing to your favorite coffee shop — another eco-friendly plus — because its standard sizes fit perfectly under most espresso machines and coffee makers.
The non-insulated mug won’t keep coffee warm for long, so you may need to reheat your coffee at least once if you tend to sip slowly.
While it’s the priciest mug on our list, the Ember mug may be worth the cost if you’re tired of reheating your coffee throughout the morning.
The mug is battery-powered and can keep your coffee hot for 80 minutes, or you can set the mug on a charging coaster to keep your drink hot for hours.
The Ember mug works with an app that allows you to set the exact temperature you’d like your coffee to be held at, within the range of 120–145°F (49–63°C).
As a safety feature, the mug automatically enters sleep mode when it’s empty.
For a low tech option to keep your coffee hot (or cold) for hours, we recommend the Yeti Rambler Mug.
A cozier alternative to the Rambler Tumbler, the mug features an easy-to-hold grip and double-wall vacuum insulation.
It comes in several colors and sizes, including a large 24-oz (710-mL) size for serious coffee drinkers.
Plus, its wide mouth makes it versatile — it also works well as a bowl for oatmeal, soups, and stews.
“I don’t own one of these mugs myself. However, I used to eye one in the coffee shop I frequented daily for years, and I’ve gifted this mug to other people. This is one of those mugs that I’ve seen ‘fought’ over in a household, so if you’re gifting, it may be best given in pairs.”
This best-of-both-worlds mug has the feel of ceramic with the heat retention of a metal tumbler.
Thanks to the ceramic coating, your coffee never touches the metal and there’s no metallic aftertaste. Ceramic mugs are also great for preventing lingering odors and tastes.
The tumbler also features a splash-resistant lid and a narrow shape that fits most cupholders. Plus, it comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns to suit most tastes.
Just keep in mind that because it contains metal, the tumbler can’t be placed in the microwave.
For Instagram-worthy photos — or just a really pretty drinking experience — these transparent glass mugs provide the perfect window to watch milk swirl into coffee or to enjoy the layered look of your latte or cappuccino.
The Bodum Bistro Coffee Mug features double-wall insulation to keep the outside of the mug cool to the touch while your beverage stays warm inside. The heat-resistant glass is even safe for the microwave.
“We have an espresso maker, and I love using these transparent mugs because I can see the espresso and crema layers when I pull a perfect espresso shot. Watching the milk swirl into the shot of coffee is a favorite morning ritual.
“Plus, I love that the mug does not get hot to the touch, but the coffee stays warm.”

These everyday mugs from Target feature a clean design, easy-to-grip handles, and a nice price tag — approximately $5 each.
They are also dishwasher- and microwave-safe, so we’re confident that they’ll become a staple in your kitchen.
These sleek, white mugs match virtually any decor. However, their appearance is also a potential downside, as they are a bit bland.

If you’re a fan of French press-style coffee, this is the mug for you. It’s a French press and a travel coffee mug in one!

The mug has a reusable micro-filter to keep your beverage free from coffee grinds or grit.
Plus, thanks to the vacuum insulation, your coffee will stay hot for hours.

“I love these mugs. They’re so cute, with tons of fun designs. They’re also a really nice size, and they have a good weight to them as well.
“I received this mug as a gift from a friend, and it’s become one of my favorites. I drink coffee in the morning and tea at night, and it’s perfect for both beverages. It’s also microwave-safe — a plus if you reheat your coffee a million times like I do — and dishwasher-safe.”
— Healthline Senior Editor Chelsea Logan
Calling all fans of “Fantastic Fungi” — these adorable lidded mugs are perfect as a gift or for adding a whimsical touch to your coffee mug collection.
The mugs come in four colors and are dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Plus, the cozy mushroom cap lid helps keep your coffee warm longer.
“I love this cute little mushroom mug. It brightens my day just sitting on my kitchen counter next to my tea kettle, and the little mushroom lid helps to keep my drinks warm longer. I love that it comes in different colors so you can collect them all in a set but still have variety.”
As this list shows, there are many coffee mug options to choose from. To help narrow your search, here are some things to keep in mind:
The best reusable coffee mug is one that you’ll use daily. While some people prefer Yeti mugs because they’re insulated to keep coffee hot longer, others prefer ceramic mugs that are microwave-safe and don’t give drinks a metallic taste.
Thanks to its double-wall vacuum insulation design, the Yeti Rambler Tumbler is our pick for the best mug to keep your coffee hot.
If you don’t mind splurging, the Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2 is also a good option — it’s battery-operated to keep your coffee at a consistent temperature.
For an at-home ceramic mug, expect to spend $15–$30, though some products may be cheaper. Travel mugs tend to be a bit more expensive, at $25–$50.
If you start your day with a cup of coffee — or end it with a cup of decaf — then it’s worth investing in a good coffee mug (or two).
When shopping for a coffee mug, be sure to consider cost, size, style, and material to find the one that’s best for you.
